Long Island Community Hospital strongly believes that advancing resident scholarship is a core component of our residency program. In order to accomplish this goal, house staff are required to complete a scholarly project during the course of their training. This project may take the form of original research, a quality improvement project, a case report or series, or a formal presentation at a local, regional, or national conference. Presentations at outside conferences are supported financially by the institution.

In order to highlight the academic accomplishments of our residents,Long Island Community Hospitalhosts an annual Research and Quality Improvement Fair where house staff have the opportunity to present their work in the form of posters and oral presentations. Abstracts are reviewed by faculty who select outstanding projects in the areas of original research and quality improvement to be podium presentations. Additionally, top posters for resident research and quality improvement projects are recognized at the conclusion of the fair. These projects are added to resident portfolios so that they can be highlighted as career accomplishments.

To facilitate the completion of scholarly projects, residents are provided with protected time for research and quality improvement both during “plus one” ambulatory weeks and their month-long quality and safety rotations in their second and third years of training. In addition, the program has a monthly research meeting where ongoing projects are discussed.Faculty also are given protected time to participate in and oversee research and quality improvement projects in both the inpatient and outpatient setting. Our performance improvement department aids with research by providing support for statistical analysis and study design.

Residents also have access to a variety of online resources, such as the Institute for Healthcare Improvement modules on quality improvement. These modules augment resident understanding of quality improvement methodology. This complements their hands-on experiences in the clinical setting where they work on quality improvement projects based on the collective priorities of the institution.
Additionally, residents receive a lecture series on research methodology, the research process, and evidence based medicine during their noon conference series. These lectures complement the Journal Club/EBM conference series throughout the year.

We are excited to encourage scholarship in our program and enjoy working with residents to achieve our academic goals!
